Shanghai Jiao Tong University, one of the top universities in China, is undertaking a major expansion aimed at becoming one of the world’s leading centers of scientific research. As part of this expansion program, it has established a new Institute of Natural Sciences http://ins.sjtu.edu.cn/, which is designed to be an interdisciplinary platform for conducting first-rate research, education and scientific exchange across the entire spectrum of Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Theoretical Chemistry, Computational, Data, Biology and Life Sciences.
An ambitious faculty recruitment program, aimed at attracting faculty members at all levels, including both senior academic leaders and promising young researchers, will be continued for the next few years. Salary and start-up packages are competitive with the peer institutions in China, and at the international level in special cases. Candidates will be considered at all ranks, and in all major fields of natural and engineering sciences. Some of the appointments will be made jointly with the relevant departments on campus. Endowed Chair Professorships are available to senior scientists with well-established academic credentials. Other senior and junior professorships are open to candidates with exceptional research records or potential.
Applications should consist of a curriculum vitae, including a list of publications, summary of future research plans, and four letters of reference. Application materials should preferably be electronically sent to Ms. Jing Du (email@example.com).
